Carbon Track and Trace (CTT) – Phase 2

The Carbon Track and Trace project will develop, with the City of Trondheim (Norway), a GPC-compliant automated GHG emissions inventory software system utilising real-time emissions monitoring in the building and transport sectors. CTT phase 2 will deploy a network of sensors, develop the software, data analytics tools and GHG emission reporting and visualization.

The Carbon Track and Trace (CTT) project phase 2 will develop together with the City of Trondheim (Norway), Vejle (Denmark) and Sør-Trøndelag (Norway) an automated GHG emissions inventory software system. The CTT project phase 2 is a partnership between Trondheim Municipality, NTNU Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Danish Technical University, T:Lab, Wireless Trondheim, Numascale, Norwegian Institue for Air Research, LSCE, VCS, and ICLEI, and will contribute to mapping out emissions in the building and transport sectors. This timely project comes back to back with local decision makers looking for more accurate ways to measure the impact of Trondheim’s mitigation strategies.

The CTT approach has become embedded in Trondheim’s new climate strategy. Additionally, the CTT is a core project for the 2016 program for NTNU’s Technoport festival, including a Climate KIC Nordic Climathon, Crack the Code, and a Climate Maker Faire in 2016.

LoCaL and Climate KIC have been crucial in enabling key linkages between city governments, research institutes, NGOs, and businesses. The CTT project has benefited immensely from facilitated contacts and knowledge exchange between LoCaL partners, for example learning from LSCE’s world-class GHG emissions experience.
